You have a starting channel of 3 defined for the input, but that's not
one of your channels. Check:
Preset tuner to channel
Leave this blank unless you have an external tuner that is connected to
the tuner input of your card. If so, you will need to specify the preset
channel for the signal (normally 3 or 4).
which should be blank unless you have your dish receiver outputting an
RF modulated signal ("coax") to the tuner input of your PVR-350--which
you shouldn't be doing. Instead, hook the receiver to the S-Video or
Composite input of the PVR-350.
And, check the starting channel. Both are in mythtv-setup.
Note that even though you're not using Myth to change channels, Myth
requires you to define a valid channel. See
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/44731#44731 for a
good explanation of how (but instead of selecting "tv_grab_na", choose
anything--the MySQL stuff will fix it up for you). If you're using SVN,
select "No grabber" and don't worry about the MySQL stuff ("No grabber"
takes care of it for you).
